RUNAWAY BRIDE (Theatrical Release USA 1999)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Runaway Bride—very good romance starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts—has one of the cleanness, romance scripts written in years. Well written, with little rude humor, it presents an appealing story based on a refreshingly creative storyline that can appeal to every audience of all age groups. It is very well put together and is highly appealing. The film is straightforward, and the acting is very good, believable, and done right.
